, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and looked like he doesn't understand what was at stake. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. he was talking about cleaning up a football field of rubbiage. and i think it's civilly when you can't play politics. right now, we're having a debate over the future of our society. and things like this disaster relief are really quite pertinent. so it's not that he can't campaign, but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema. go out and there and defend your me first, dif involve to the states attitude. but he's scared and e he won't do it. >> this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politicians. what we're really making of all of this, here's chris christie in a news conference before the storm yesterday. >> i should call him directly at the white house and he was going to be there and i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else, to ca
event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas. that's the big focus today. why? it's an issue that resonates with the voters here's in ohio. one out
the latest from republican senator john mccain, and obama supporter mayor rahm emanuel of chicago. plus analysis from ruth marcus of the "washington post." mark leibovich of the "new york times magazine." bob shrum of the the "daily beast." john fund of the "national review." and cbs news political director, john dickerson. here comes the storm because this is "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and good morning again. welcome to "face the nation." and if there were not enough political and weather news, add this-- an earthquake that measures a magnitude of 7.7 has taken place off the coast of western canada. no injuries or damage reported so far there. so we're going to start with the big storm up the east coast of the united states, hurricane sandy. for that, we go to chief meteorologist david bernard from our miami, florida, station wfor. dave, tell us what you know. >> reporter: all right, good morning, bob. all right the weather is starting to affect the mid-atlantic states and the outer ban
play you something that john mccain said today. he was in ohio supporting the gop senate candidate but said very nasty words about the president and the 9/11 libya attack. take a listen to this. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up concealing from the american people or is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. >> karen, like many of us, we respect mr. mccain's service to this nation both politically and militarily, but is it really appropriate on a day like this to start giving a commentary about the president of the united states in those tones? >> and also it's just very disappointing, martin. i think this is the complete political transformation of john mccain that we've seen. i used -- like you, i have had great respect for john mccain and he knows as well as anyone, and condoleezza rice herself went out and made the point in terms of the things that happened in benghazi and that information was changesiing, th that's what's happening. you have to gather all of the information and try to put togethe
. i mean this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and really looked like he didn't understand what was at stake or what was going on. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. i mean he was talking about cleaning up -- one time he had to clean up a football field of rubbish and comparing that to disaster relief and i'm not somebody -- i think it's kind of silly when we say we can't play politics at this moment. there's always politics and right now we're having an election. we're having a debate over the future of our society and things like disaster relief are really quite pertinent, so it's not that he can't to me it's not that he can't campaign but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema and go out and defend your me first, devolve to the states attitude. it's a good time to have a debate about it but he's scared so he won't do it. >> you know, this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politic
them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blast president obama on the benghazi attack. one other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. [♪ theme music ♪] >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: my new political hero, chris christie. he is saying lots of nice things about president obama today, and president obama is going up to new jersey today to tour the storm-ravaged areas with governor chris christie. good morning, everybody, welcome to the "full court press" right here on current tv and on your local progressive talk radio station this wednesday morning. halloween, trick or
parties maintained a lifelong friendship. we can look at john mccain, bob kerrey, chuck hegel, john kerry who faced enormous challenges on returning home, took the lead in normalizing relationships with vietnam and helping to heal a wounded nation. it is our responsibility to uphold the legacy of those who have gone before us as we in keeping with the mission of the united states naval academy assume the highest responsibility of command and citizenship and government. thank you very much.

to special interest groups. president obama does tha look at this clip from this debate against john mccain. >> actually, i am cutting more than i am spending so that it will be in that spending cut. john: what? what expending cut? ineased spending to at $3 trillion. but newsday columnist ellis henequen -- ellis henican says i am wrong to be so cynical. he said he would cut, and he spent like a drunken sailor. >> we all want a president who will say something way before he becomes elected and feel like he is completely, rigidly tied into that in ways that he cannot deal with events ashe happen. a lot of stuff happens, some of it was pretty bad, and you want a president to is in there being flexible for you john: he was be really flexible. >> okay. john: when he debated hillary clinton he said -- he complained that government spent some much money on programs that don't work, and he was going to eliminate a whole host of them. >> we need to eliminate a host of programs that did not work, and i want to go to the federal budget line by line, pagg by page, programs that do not work we should cu
. in 2008, president obama beat john mccain. it says: >> cenk: so, apparently getting their clock cleaned in florida. does that make a big difference? >> it does. 2.8 million absentee ballots have been ordered in florida. 1.6 million have already been returned. there were only 2.2 million in florida ordered in 2008. it's a big difference percentage-wise. the fact that they're worried about it is important. follow what these people are saying constantly. when you see an internal memo saying their clocks are getting cleaned, their clocks are getting cleaned. >> cenk: if romney is trailing in florida or even close romney again in big big big trouble because he needs florida absolutely positively. all right, michael shure thanks so much for joining us. we really appreciate it. how much trouble is mitt romney in? we sent ben down davis to talk to the odds makers and how certain are they if they are at all that president obama's going to win. ben reports fromvasion when we return. >> you can't pick a winner? >> i would lose that bet. >> cenk: we'll tell you about ohio and of course, the elbow o

internal targets and the romney campaign is doing much better than john mccain did in 2008. that secondary aspect, doing better than john mccain is insufficient. john mccain did virtually nothing in early voting. the romney campaign is doing much better but it's a low bar. the obama campaign feels very good about its own metrics and believes by the time election day actually arrives, they'll have sizeable leads in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly even in florida, enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day. >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is becoming a huge and important trend in american presidential politics. >> thank you, major. >> major garret, thank you so much. >>> time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. los angeles times says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern california campus. four people were wounded and two people have been detained. officials shut down the campus and urged students to
higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was

in the country to have voted for john carey in 2004 and john mccain in 2008, the only district that slipped from democratic to republican in between those two elections. was are the voters president wants, clinging to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october surprise in campaign 2012 and the history of it. this on twitter -- guest: she's probably right. many people aboard a voted. there is 1 weeks ago. the average american is paying attention to something other than politics, whether it's their own economic situation or recovering from storm damage in a swing state like virginia or new hampshire. -- many people have voted already. ballistics of trying to get around the place
commander-in-chief, if we'd had john mccain in the white house or mitt romney in the white house, as soon as that consulate was attacked back in april and then in june again, it would have gotten more security. and then, when the president found out on september 11th that it was under attack now for a third pitime, he wouldn't have relied on the libyan governor to protect our people or cia operatives. would have send the military immediately and not wonder whether he offended the libyan government. who gives a darn if you offend the libyan government if american lives are at stake, particularly if they demonstrated in the months before they could not protect that consulate. that's why it's important to know whether the president know about the prior attacks? because if he did know, then his inaction is totally inexcusable. >> uma: mr. mayor, it's a pleasure to have you on the show today. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> uma: i know you've got a very busy weekend and hope to see you soon and i know you're going to be watching the results very closely come tuesda
time around the president 66 percent. his competitor at that time, john mccain, 32 percent among young voters. how hard is this at the end of the day when you look at this for people to up sign-on with the president when you can't get a job? >> okay. gerri: sorry about that. i'm asking both of you. >> youngbear voters were an indispensable part of his winning coalition in 2008. 23 million younger voters went and cast their ballot. the vast majority of them went to barack obama. that is why he has these tail mary's trying to get bruce springsteen and in ohio and iowa, trying to a kid young people up to vote for him. these are not college kids. thousands are coming out on college campuses. the mtv was swayed. nike said, you won't have any hard-hitting journalistic questions. will these tactics work? they do, but not to the same degree they did in 2008. gerri: the question is all about whether young people go and vote at the end of the day. something that i think is really important. this new ad with a young girl. she is an actress and a hit series called girls. i want you to listen to th
: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did the
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger
of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots accept as a backup in case of emergency. we don't have a lever machines any
and understands that running is very hard on families. it is very tough. after the last campaign when john mccain won, i made this recording for my husband. "sweetie, i am never doing this again." he laughed. he said, "you say that after every pregnancy." true, true, and yet i have five boys. i will tell you when the fifth boy -- those are the days when you never knew what you were having -- when he popped out, i turned to mitt and said, "that is all i got." it was a long time waiting for the first granddaughter. i have five sons. you had a daughter. i have 18 grandchildren. guess how many are boys -- 13. i am surrounded. by the way, i have all brothers. i had to learn how to play football and baseball and play and roughhouse and everything else. life is interesting, and the boys taught me amazing lessons, and i appreciate them so much. i could have nearly killed them when they were kids, but they taught me how to be open and how to be open with your feelings and how to express your feelings openly. i was shy. the thought that i am even up here on the stage with a microphone in my hand is wonderf
for republicans, right? they have tried this over and over. >> yeah, go back four years ago. john mccain and sarah palin came here and didn't work out. you go out, george w. bush tried it and bob dole in '96. no republican has been successful since 1988 here in pennsylvania. we're going to keep our eyes on pennsylvania today with paul ryan and tomorrow when mitt romney comes through and i guess we'll find out on tuesday who was right. randi. >> we certainly will. hopefully we'll find out on tuesday the way this is going. >> yes, good point. >> paul steinhauser, thank you very much. >>> much more ahead this hour. >> here's what's coming up. >>> sandy has brought devastation across the northeast, but it may also have been the october surprise. we have the latest on the recovery efforts and sandy's impact on the election. >>> battleground wisconsin. three days left and now it's all about the ground game. we'll take you to one of the contentious swing states. >> i'll tired of both obama and mitt romney. >>> she can't vote, but she's already crying about the election. find out why this toddler just can
the last election. john mccain and george w. bush, three quarters of the likely boarders are going to support mitt romney in this election. >> what are catholics supposed to do this time around? to buy contraceptives for employees of the church and you turn around. the other side of cathol simp promotes the fact of giving to the poor and a lot of the democratic values? >> right. one of the things that you mentioned is that we have two vice presidential candidates who were both catholic and they both represent varying different emphasis of the catholic church in their own way. one of the things we're seeing this year is catholics really have two options. really presented to them and both faithful to catholic teaching. and teaching on social justice. a recent survey. we found that interestingly enough, they say that 2-1 is they would -- they would like to see an emphasis on church leaders from social justice issues and that divide falls out the way you think it would, 6-10 would like to see more emphasis on social justice. the footprints in the church are supporting obama and about 2
